I did not open this zine for days due to the glitter, a substance barely tolerable on women’s bodies and intolerable in piñatas and printed materials. Each of the affixed envelopes holds a typed note and the last envelope has a surprise. These notes describe the daily isolation and immobilization of mental illness. The author or protagonist describes her struggles with basic tasks and personal relationships and her life seems to be colored with depression and anxiety. It is sad to view the world from this person’s perspective, but important since many North Americans suffer from depression and other mental illness. This zine is not happy but it contains hope.
